Charming Stay

5 on May 29, 2015

What used to be a 4 room B&B is now a charming single suite. The owners were incredibly friendly, and accommodated our slightly picky food preferences. Suite was 2-bedrooms plus ensuite bathroom with shower. Hot Tub and Movie Room are in the basement past the dining room and owner residence. Located in a peaceful residential neighborhood.

Hospitality Plus!

Larry and Annie have created a little oasis in the midst of Madison. Their home is like a mini-resort, a permanent vacation. They offer more amenities than one can list... be sure to call ahead and ask questions ahead of time; it will save you packing extras that you will NOT need! Warner Park behind their house provides a beautiful backdrop... the trees in the park that you'll see from the large west-facing windows were planted by Larry years ago; that's just the kind of guy he is. Annie and Larry's interests are wide-ranging, their backgrounds fascinating, and their conversation scintillating. This B&B experience is the most memorable and personal you may ever have!

Great Stay

Our time at Annie's was just what we expected. We loved the rooms, with all of the knick knacks and decorations. We enjoyed the jacuzzi, the bed was comfortable, and everything was clean and tidy. Larry, our host, was charming and very knowledgeable about Madison. His breakfasts were tasty, and we enjoyed eating with him very much. Thanks for a good stay!

peaceful weekend stay

We came for a quiet weekend away from home. Having the run of the house was a unique treat at this B&B. The hosts are chatty and have lot's of information about Madison history and goings on. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend this spot to anyone looking for a clean comfortable quiet getaway.

I have had more experience with B&B's, however you never know what you are getting into. This B&B was by all means our best and more pleasurable. We will return again.

Awesome place

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Annie's. They make you feel very welcome, and pamper you the whole way. Breakfast both mornings was unsurpassed. We felt like the King and Queen of the castle. We found the place very quiet and peaceful. It is full of interesting books, art and decorations. Larry is extremely knowledgeable about the Madison area. wledgeable about the Madison area. Annie's is a short way from the Capital, which means there is no shortage of things to do and see.

A fantastic stay in a warm and cozy setting. My hosts were very accomodating and friendly, even waiting for us to arrive well after midnight. The setting is very quiet and peaceful, with beatiful gardens and vegetation surrounding the property. We will return!

Simply outstanding

My wife and I spent two nights and could not have been more pleased. Everything from the lodging, to Annie and Larry's hospitality exceeded our expectations. Wonderful breakfast, amenities and great morning conversations with our hosts made this the most pleasurable stay. Thank you so much, Ron and Jennifer.
